Agile Software Development

Helastel are Agile. Where appropriate, we follow an Agile software development process. Being Agile provides us with the ability to create and respond to change in order to succeed in an uncertain and often turbulent project environment.

Agile software development is an umbrella term for a set of methods and practices based on the values and principles described in the Agile Manifesto. Our projects evolve through collaboration between self-organising, cross-functional teams utilising the most appropriate practices for delivering against our customers requirements.

In 100% of cases, arriving at the software you really need comes as the result of intensive and purposeful scoping to ensure it’s fully aligned with your business.

Our efficient software scoping methodology is designed to:

  • Streamline the shape of your software project.
  • Reduce friction in subsequent development processes.
  • Establish your deepest requirements.
  • Agree the objectives that will deliver the most meaningful change.

This is where our business analysts listen to your requirements and understand your journey so far. We’ll ask probing, difficult questions that get at what you really need; addressing root causes rather than treating symptoms. This frequently contradicts what our customers thought they needed. You’ll be glad it did. The result is a documented consensus on the key factors for success and a suggested approach for getting there, with budgets and timescales.
